WDT: Mercy Project Moves to Be In the Ground By Labor Day

     The Mercy site project moves ahead with plans going before two city boards this month. The first phase involves the Arsenal Street frontage and includes some land swaps with St. Patrick's church to maximize commercial space in exchange for church parking on the interior of the parcel. The church will also get to use a new community center on site.
       Construction is to begin in August at the earliest.

I'll believe it when I see it.

Here is a chance for Butler to prove himself as a city leader or as another inept visionless city leader. He should INSIST on forcing Corr build something more attractive and more useful like the original proposal, instead of this cookie-cutter big-box urban-sprawl style cheap building. The city should place a moratorium on new residential buildings until they can reach an agreeable design that does not look like Maywood Terrace.

I second 7:39. Here is Joey's moment to shine and get out from under being Junior and your shadow. Good luck to him! Wasn't one of our own city leaders quoted as saying this project is HUGH!

Unless Jr. can rebuild the old Mercy building and make proper use of it or simply put down asphalt it's just more unnecessary housing for our city.
